Forum: opensource_movies Subject: Copyrighted music/score in a video, can I still submit?

Hi

I wanted to know if I can submit my short student films here under a Attribution-NonCommercial license.

The catch is that my videos do have samples of copyrighted artists (Placebo, Flaming Lips, The Arcade Fire, Felix Da Housecat) being used as the soundtrack.

I give them credit at the end of the videos, but am I still allowed to upload with the license?

Thank you
(M)

Going by the way things have been conducted here lately, yes, it is okay to upload anything at all, anything you can find. However, if the curators are notified, it may be taken down. This section of the archive is stuffed-to-burstin with copyrighted works. Look around. Relax. Then, upload that cam of NORBIT or a cracked, mislabeled copy of the latest Fruity Loops.

In a more serious tone...

I know there have been films uploaded and then removed because while the film might be public domain, there was a song or something that was still protected. However, I it seems to me that there's some sort of exemption for sampling music, maybe a length limit or some such. Not that I really know much about it; everything I know I learned from these forums. :)

Maybe Alex or some other Archive-ist can tell you the rules.
